Tuesday is Election Day in San Marcos and throughout Hays County, though this off off-year ballot is one of the lightest in the election cycle.
However, the action in San Marcos will involve two city council races. In Place 6, two-term incumbent John Thomaides, a small business owner, is defending his seat against beauty consultant Monica Garcia and retired civil servant Anita Fuller. In Place 5, where incumbent Pam Couch decided to not run, the hopefuls are vying to take her place. Those candidates are academic advisor Lisa Marie Coppoletta, small business owner Shaune Maycock and homebuilder Ryan Thomason, who is on the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z).
The election also will decide the fate of 11 proposed amendments to the Texas Constitution. The amendments all were passed by the state legislature this year before going to the voters.
Ten different polling locations are to be open in San Marcos from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
